Shop our selection of quality Presco pennant flags. We offer multi and solid color flag strands. These flags are perfect for sporting events, grand openings, and construction sites. They are available in either 60 or 100-foot strand lengths.
Wire Staff Flags
One of the most popular and durable forms of marker flags are wire staff flags that use a high-carbon alloy steel. Wire staff flags work well in many applications, especially in difficult terrain or rugged conditions such as a construction site. The high-carbon alloy steel adds tensile strength and a better bend resistance to the flags. We offer Presco wire staff flags in various staff and flag sizes. We also have a large selection of flag colors and even ones with reflective stripes for nighttime viewing. All of the Presco stake flags are sold in quantities of either 100 flags per bundle or for larger jobs, 1000 flags per case.
